Winemaker Notes

"From Penfold's former winemaker, John Duval's debut release is the 2003 Plexus, a brilliant blend of Shiraz (46%), Grenache (32%), and Mourvedre (22%) that was aged in 30% new French oak. At present, there are only 500 cases of this stunning effort, but, hopefully, production will increase. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by an extraordinarily precise nose of flowers, blackberries, kirsch, licorice, and a hint of Provencal herbs. A pleasant smokiness and meaty richness also emerge as the wine sits in the glass. Opulent, full-bodied, stunningly pure, and dense as well as elegant and well-delineated, it can be drunk now or cellared for 10-12 years. Kudos to John Duval."
-Wine Advocate

Four generations of the Duval clan have been vignerons in South Australia. The inspiration of the Barossa Valley's old vine, low yielding Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre created Plexus, combining elements into a beautifully structured blend. Traditional winemaking practices and fifteen months in French oak barriques will ensure the age worthiness of this first ever release, ensuring a long cellar life.

John Duval is one of Australia's most highly regarded winemakers. Raised on a South Australian farm with three generations of grape growers before him, his vinous path was fated. However, it was during his 28-year tenure with Penfolds that his passion for the famed Barossa Valley flourished. As Chief Winemaker and custodian of Australia's most famous wine, Grange, he was instrumental in establishing Penfolds as one of the world's great wineries. His accolades include being named UK Wine and Spirit Competition's International Winemaker of the Year, Red Winemaker of the Year (twice) and receiving Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year award. In 2003, John embarked on his own label, John Duval Wines, inspired by the best of the Barossa Valley's low-yielding, old vine vineyards. With a deft touch he crafts intense wines that are as complex and distinctive as the diverse terroir of his treasured Barossa Valley.
